Ancient Hawaiian Bodywork Retreat - Lomi Lomi Nui ~ 6-Day Residential Retreat for previous participants:  May 31st - June 5th, 2013  ~ Jody Mountain

 Lomi Lomi Nui is an ancient bodywork of Hawai'i designed to wake up the cellular intelligence of the body.  The recipient receives a holistic massage of long flowing strokes, deep work and joint manipulation within a deeply sacred context.  This ancient, shamanic practice contacts and re-aligns the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies, creating quantum leaps in our ability to navigate all aspects of life in harmony with our deepest self.  Training in this sacred art begins with our own journey of awareness into the physical body unlocking old patterning, blockage and trauma to allow a fuller and more open flow throughout our being. 
Training in this sacred form allows for renewed alignment on all levels and will transform your bodywork practice as well as every area of your life.  Embracing the unique and empowering work of Lomi Lomi Nui is a transformational experience for bodyworkers and novices alike.    Foundational and intermediate Lomi Lomi technique included. Trainings will enable the participant to perform a full session of Lomi Lomi Nui.  Please Note: Trainings are for anyone interested in profound and lasting Personal & Spiritual Growth, including Massage Therapists, Yoga Practitioners, Teachers and Healers. No massage experience is necessary.
Cost:  Early Registration  €1,150 (before March 31st) • €1,300 (after March 31st)

  Fred's Fresh Vegetarian Cooking~ Dates  TBC ~ get a group of four or more together we will run the course at a time that suits you!
            Food is not merely for filling that hole in your stomach! It has also certain effects on your physical, emotional and mental health. Vegetables, grains and herbs not only provide vitamins and minerals, but prepared in the correct way, can bring out the best in you and your family. And…don’t forget the importance of the cooks attitude. Passion, love and healing are all ingredients important in food preparation.
Over the weekend you will practise all this with one breakfast, two lunches and one dinner. You will also go home with lots of new ideas and inspiration and of course recipes. Throughout the course, smells of freshly baked bread will engulf you at times….. You will learn how to bake various types of breads and scones. The weekend also offers the opportunity to learn how to bake tasty dietary breads such as gluten, dairy and yeast free breads. Just tell us on the day or in advance what your interests are! 
The other item we always include in the course is: SOUP. Soup is a very personal dish. The types and styles are various, ranging from a soup that fills you for a day, to one that just ‘tickles your tongue’. In this weekend we will go through the process of creating different soups and your own  personal soup, getting inspired, sharing and learning from each other.  The magic of the ‘stock pot’ will be revealed……..
